Dispute over KBD must be settled: PEW

ISLAMABAD – PEW on Sunday said the country was facing water terrorism from India as part of its plan to destabilise Pakistan.

The scarcity of water in rivers has pushed people to utilise groundwater, which is depleting at a fast pace, it said. “Politicians should immediately settle the dispute over the Kalabagh Dam and other mega projects without which future of the country seems bleak,’ said Dr Murtaza Mughal, PEW president.

He said that demand and supply gap for water had reached alarming levels which would make Pakistan a parched land, if steps were not taken immediately.
